Elisha Cuthbert to Lead NBC’s One Big Happy »
Elisha Cuthbert is staying "Happy" ... although it's not the "Happy" fans want.
"One Big Happy" is about two platonic friends since childhood -- a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano). They live together and try to have a baby via artificial insemination, and they finally get pregnant ... just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life. Oops?
At least "Happy Endings" fans will get to see Cuthbert in another sitcom with "Happy" in the title, right? »
We were thrilled when Nick Zano was cast as the male lead on NBC’s One Big Happy, and there’s more cause for celebration as his Happy Endings co-star Elisha Cuthbert has snagged the female lead. The show “centers on two platonic friends since childhood — a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano) — who have been living together and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time. They finally get pregnant — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life.”

Remember how when "Happy Endings" premiered everybody was all, "But Elisha Cuthbert isn't funny, at least not intentionally." And then after one season we were like, "Wait. Maybe Elisha Cuthbert is funny if you use her correctly." And then after two seasons, we were like, "Wait. Elisha Cuthbert is just plain funny." And then when "Happy Endings" ended, we were like, "Get Elisha Cuthbert a new comedy, now!" It took a little while, but a network is finally trying. We can confirmed that Elisha Cuthbert has been cast in the NBC/Wbtv comedy pilot "One Big Happy," a multi-cam sitcom »

To preface this article, I’d like to openly acknowledge the fact that there isn’t a single “great” film on this list. Furthermore, given the concept of this piece, it’s safe to say that you’re not going to read about any significantly original films either.
The whole remake thing kind of blew those hopes out of the water. That said, we’re going to eye 10 remakes/reboots/reimaginings that were forced through the meat grinder upon arrival, despite the fact that they didn’t entirely deserve such brutish treatment.
Believe it or not, there are a few remakes out there worth watching. The horror world would have you believe that not a single film on this list qualifies, but I’m here – battling valiantly – to prove the voices of many wrong. Dig in for a closer look at some remakes that, while not monumental, still offer some redeeming qualities. »

Fans of 24 have been patiently waiting for the series to receive a proper conclusion ever since season 8 ended on a cliffhanger way back in 2010. For years, a big screen continuation was promised, but numerous attempts to bring Jack Bauer back to life failed again and again (everything from script issues to Kiefer Sutherland being unhappy with the amount of money Fox were offering were given as the reason why).
Well, following last year’s announcement that a 12 episode event series was being planned, we now know that 24: Live Another Day will debut (in the Us at least) with a special two-hour premiere on Monday, May 5th. The official press release also confirms earlier reports that it will be both set and shot in London, with the focus again on Jack as “he attempts to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever.”
